It seems to have retractable gear. Does anyone know anything about it?

Not retractable..

The skirts were removed for less drag and to keep all the mud/muck from collecting inside and making the wheels seize up.

looks to me like either a G-1 or a G-2

The plane in the picture is G-2. But the the removal of the fairings doesn't improve aerodynamics, on the contrary it adds drag. But never the less such thing had to be done if the field was in bad condition.
